There is nothing overly special about this guitar, but it does what it's made to do, and does it well. For beginners purchasing the first guitar can be stressful as there are numerous models and manufacturers that offer what appears to be a solid instrument at a very low price. With the Fender FA-100 Limited Edition Dreadnought, anyone looking to start playing acoustic guitar has an option that is made by a trusted brand, and isn't too expensive.
When it comes to design, the FA-100 Limited Edition Dreadnought is quite simple. It features a Dreadnought body shape, with the body made from laminated spruce on the top, and laminated Agathis on the sides and back. The fretboard is standard rosewood and fairly smooth. The bridge is also made of Rosewood and features a bone compensated saddle. This guitar comes in several color schemes, and you can choose between black, natural, natural satin, and sunburst.
The quality is as good as you would expect from a guitar in this price range. The body is fairly basic, and the rosewood fretboard and bridge are more than decent. The quality of the tuning pegs is great and the FA-100 Limited Edition Dreadnought has no problem maintaining your preferred tuning. The sound is great and can even compete with more expensive models on the market. The strings that come with the guitar are the most basic set of strings you can find, and should probably be replaced soon. One weak point of this Fender seem to be the saddle. The quality is not always on point, and this part can be easily damaged if you're not careful when changing strings.
